Review of the Optimum 9400 Blender
I have had a lot of questions regarding the different models of Optimum Blenders. As many of you know I am and have been a massive fan of the Optimum Blenders for some time. They have three models, the 9200, 9400 and 9900, and I have had a review on the differences on The Raw Food Mum for some time, however the biggest question I am asked is “Which blender do I recommend”? and it is for this reason I wanted to write a new review on the 9400, and explain why it really is the perfect blender for domestic use. The 9200 and 9900 are both powerful blenders, however as far as price points goes it is the 9400 blender that has been upgraded to suit the home environment, and is reflected in this price point. The Optimum Blender 9400 is the perfect blender for domestic use and is our best selling model for a reason. This blender uses a dial instead of buttons (like the 9200) which enables more control. It’s 3HP motor and speed of 44,000 rpm is superior to the 9900, and with it’s new upgrades listed below, outperforms it at many tasks:
Upgrade features of the 9400 include:
- A longer 6-blade assembly for improved chopping, slicing and grinding performance compared to the 9900, which has shorter blades designed for commercial use in busy juice bars for smoothies and juices.
- Steel-plated jug base for improved durability, and to avoid leaking over the long term.
- A new fuse motor-protection switch to increase the longevity of the motor. The blender also has the standard overload switch as well.
I recommend the new Optimum Blender 9400 as it is able to carry out a number of food preparation functions such as blending, pureeing, mixing, grinding, and whipping different kinds of food – great for a raw food diet! The 9400 can blend anything from fruits, vegetables, beans, ice, spices as well as grind your grains. it is great for making but butters, greens smoothies the list is endless. So, whether you are looking to make a raw soup, ice cream, a green smoothie or an entire meal, the 9400 is perfect for multi-tasking. The powerful engine and high speed blades can also handle frozen and hot food as well as room temperature. The Optimum is definitely a single kitchen appliance that is characterized by excellence and distinction.
Here Are A Few More Reasons Why I Love These Blenders:
- They’re affordable – The Optimum Blenders are nearly half the price point of the Vitamix with just as much power and quality, which makes it a great entry point for anyone wanting to start making raw food or smoothies that are completely blended.
- They’re high quality - The Optimum Blender 9400 is identical to the Optimum 9200 and manufactured using the same high-quality durable parts.
- Intense power – The Optimum Blender is equipped with a self-compensating energy-efficient motor which can reach a power of 2,238 Watt and a staggering speed of 44,000 rpm. It will blend your smoothie in less then 30 seconds sometimes less. You wont see little specs of kale like you do in some cheaper blenders.
But don’t blenders heat the food cells?
The blending functions of 20, 35 and 45 seconds allow the Optimum 9400 to make drinks including smoothies and juices without warming the contents. The blender breaks the cell walls of raw foods to make the enzymes more bio-available, thus they are not heated. Without the need to break down large molecules of food, the intestines have less work to do. And just in case you weren’t convinced… Just one green smoothie into a families diet a day its going to start changing your families eating habits and by using a decent blender it changes the ball game completely! If you have purchased my Raw Food 4 Kids book you know there are just endless amounts of recipes that use a blender and by using a high powered blender you not only save time, you ensure the ingredients are kept raw and not heated – this is where the optimum blenders are the perfect home appliance.
